What is a Disciple? by David Flowers

Hello CMF,

What is a disciple? What does discipleship look like?

These questions were brought up following the sermon, Missional Church (3 of 6), at our retreat this past weekend. I wanted to take the time to further respond to those questions while reviewing what I covered on the relational "spaces" within the church.

Please give it a listen and consider what God might be speaking to you.

Do you want to go deeper into discipleship? Join one of our small groups and work to meet with your group faithfully in a personal space. Want to join a Life Transformation Group (LTG) of 3-4 people? Please contact me and we will get you plugged in to this intimate space for disciples.

Let's follow Jesus together!

"God did not design us to do Kingdom mission outside the scope of intentional, biblical discipleship. If we don't see that, we're fooling ourselves. Mission is under the umbrella of discipleship."  Mike Breen, Multiplying Missional Leaders (pg.11)


Blessings,
Pastor David

Small Groups Are Not... by David Flowers

Hello CMF,

I read a book years ago called "God is Not..." that went on to build the case that God is not religious, nice, one of us, etc. It was helpful as it dispelled some really bad ideas about God. 

Sometimes it can be helpful to talk about what something is not in order to get at what the thing actually is in reality. Check out this humorous video on shallow small groups. 

This is NOT what small groups ought to be like. 

How is life in your small group? Are you taking advantage of the opportunities you have to go deeper with one another and encounter Christ in this personal space? Don't miss out!

Stay tuned! Tomorrow I will post a visual addendum to yesterday's sermon.

Blessings,

Pastor David
